Come celebrate Family Day at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria!

Families of all ages are invited to discover the exhibition Crossing: Art, Heritage and Personal Journeys; learning about the stories of three local artists and their families who embarked on transformative journeys from Asia to Canada. Take inspiration from the exhibition to create your own family portrait in graphite, a collaged landscape and even participate in an art project with one of the artists from the exhibition!

Join us for an afternoon filled with fun and engaging art making activities, self-guided tours and more, embracing the importance of family to all of us.

From 2PM – 4PM. Free with admission.
